Beau Biden's wife thanks supporters

Thursday, May 13, 2010

Beau Biden's wife has sent a message to supporters saying he will soon be back up and running at full speed after suffering a mild stroke.

Hallie Biden sent the message to the Delaware attorney general's campaign supporters Thursday morning.

"Thank you so much for your prayers and well-wishes over the last couple of days. As you all know by now, we made it!" the statement reads.

She said Biden, the vice president's eldest son, will remain in the hospital for a little while but is ready to get back home. She joked that she believes he is working with their young children to plan an escape route from the Philadelphia hospital where he was taken Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Gov. Jack Markell says Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden shows no evidence of having suffered a stroke.

Markell and his wife, Carla, visited Biden on Thursday at the hospital.

Markell says Biden looks and sounds great.
